Women's Health Care In Georgia, Part 1


See video

Is there a "War On Women" in America? Is a woman's right to choose under attack? Is Roe V Wade at risk of becoming a relic of history? In Georgia, the legislature passed a bill, the "Fetal Pain Bill", that bans abortions after 20 weeks, with few exceptions. Women's health care isn't just an issue of personal choice, it's an economic issue. In this three part film, we look at the status of women's health care in Georgia. In part one, you will meet Monica Simpson of SisterSong, an Atlanta based organization that educates women of color on issues of reproduction, sexual health and human rights. Monica shows us that when a woman can control her reproduction, she can then take control of her education choices, her economic future, and her families stability. This film runs 34 minutes.
